BESIDES Spanking what forms of discipline do you use?
MOST HELPFUL POSTS
Standing in the corner is awesome! My kids don't do that (no empty corners in this house), but standing w/ their nose on the wall works too.
The kid I babysit goes in the corner when he's been violent. He hates it cuz he can hear what's going on, but not SEE or interact w/ anything. That's why it works. :)

Duct tape and cages, Ok Ok I am kidding.
Time outs and removal of privileges, for 95% of the stuff. For some of the major stuff they have to scrub a squair on the tile.
This really isn't discipline, When they are bickering or being rude to each other they sit at the table for a set amount of time and have to say positive things about the other, and what they enjoy about the other, To remind them that they aren't the bad people they were saying they were while fighting.

Time outs in her bedroom and taking a toy away if it's directly involved with the unfavourable behaviour. Also if she can't seem to remember a certain rule, I'll make her say it over and over again, since she's not a good writer yet.
Someone's using vinegar? That's just weird.

Time outs here. I made my daughter stand with her nose to the wall and I thought she was going to have a coronary. I did that once. Now my 2 year old is hitting, but she likes time outs so I have to figure out something else.

It started one night when we were at the dinner table and all four of them were picking on each other I got fed up said wasnt eat at the dinning room table with them so I went outside to that table they followed so I went back in they came back in so I finally yelled shut up and said for the next 30 minutes we are saying something postitive about each other instead, by about the third time around things turned around and got a few 'you really think so?' with some of the comments. when they got done they all played soccer lol.
I also thread hanging them by their toe nails in the tree in the back yard. lol I wonder if they figured out we dont have trees in the back yard LOL
Ooh... that's a good one Tamara. I usually just let the girls 'duke' it out unless it gets really violent. Finding a way to force them to be nice to each other might be better....
And duct tape is my number one parenting 'threat'.... of course, all my kids know I don't even OWN any duct tape... yet. ;)

We love vinegar in our house so that would be like a reward...j/k :)
We do time outs and separation from the rest of the family. My girls hate that. Being girls, they like to talk and discuss their behavior so that helps tremendously. My 7 yr old is getting a little mouthy so we may introduce writing sentences. That worked for me at her age!

I do the time out and if he refuses the time out I have made him stand in a corner before .My MIL says standing in the corner is humiliating for him but what is the difference from the time out chair??I am going to start a debate on the corner to see what every one thinks on that!!!
